On the tower station we bough ticket for cable car (about 8 000 or 9 000 won for round-trip ticket). To get to the tower you need to... More

The main attractions are the wonderful landscape of the Han river and City buildings around. There I experienced a Cable Bus for the first time, it can carry about 25 people at once. There are restaurants and the place is very tidy and clean. A must visit.

When in Seoul, you definitely should climb the hill and visit the tower to get an impression of the immensity of this city. For me it was really breath taking.

we went there shortly after sunset and it was pretty cool. it's comparably cheap to go up. also the cable car is quite cheap, but crowded. and the view is cool but useless for a camera as the windows are not very clean. still a nice thing. must be nice to hike up the mountain

Seoul tower... Hmm if I had to sum it up from a guys point of view... Looks cool at night. Girls will probably think it's so romantic with all the lovely locks everywhere that look like they are going to take the very rails they are attached to fall off. Not really worth going in the day time, especially the... More

9,000won for observation only, we went all out and got the popcorn & drinks too. It is a great icon which can be seen from almost any point in Seoul, we took the cable car up one way and then an easy bus back to the city.
